"This is an extraordinarily exciting project . . . Amidst the rash of high-theory collections, this book explores the rich complexity of lesbian and gay politics across history and across cultures. The editors' willingness to re-open old debates and turn recent discussions in new directions will shed new light on the continuing problems . . . of lesbian, gay, and bisexual politics today."
-Tim Cook, Williams College
"This fine collection broadens the scope of gay and lesbian studies. Having such diverse material in one place is extremely valuable. I look forward to using "We Are Everywhere."
